My thoughts

 

One of my goals was to find schools that would fit my needs. Life Pacific College gave me the education, and spiritual aspect I would want in my education and school. The schools website helped me to find what classes I would need to take, and when they are offered. (Their psychology and counseling program is starting in Fall 2014). This gives me a year to do the internship at my church and go to the school as a sophomore in credits. This website helped me to see that this would be the right school for me.

My Thoughts

 

This article helped me realize there are plenty of areas around my home to be involved. Though it's not practical to sit in on someones private counseling session, I was given several contacts and names and numbers where I could sit in and talk with a counselor in several areas about what they do and what they think I could be doing to prepare for that as my future career.

This article/website showed me how I can be involved now, which was my third goal. It taught me how I can use my knowledge about human trafficking for good. It gave me resources to take action, fundraise, volunteer, and raise awareness. I want to give my life to helping girls rescued out of trafficking, so this website was very encouraging because I could see other people wanting to do the same thing, and seeing how they were successful.
